We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Just as smart functionality changed the way we use our cellphones, it is now doing the same thing for watches. They no longer have to be just simple timepieces. Packed with almost the full capabilities of the Android operating system, these models can now act as music players, call and text monitors, fitness and sleep trackers, mobile wallets, and more. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best android smart watch on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

February 08, 2019:

It is important to note that there is a difference between Android-compatible smartwatches and actual Android watches. Items like the Fitbit or Samsung Gear are Android-compatible, but don't actually run on an Android OS. Instead they may be Linux-based or use some other propriety operating system. Our first order of business for this ranking was to ensure we only selected models that run Wear OS 2.0, which is Google's true Android-based operating system. The Huawei 2 topped the list because it offers some of the most features, yet still comes in a slick form that doesn't feel overly bulky on the wrist. You may not be familiar with TicWatch, the brand that claimed our #2 and #3 spots, but they are quickly making a name for themselves in the industry by providing smartwatches with impressive functionality and reasonable price points, which is exactly why they are so highly rated on our list.

Many of the other so-called fashion watch brands on our list, such as the Skagen, Kate Spade, and Emporio Armani are actually made by the Fossil Group and will feature similar performance, though there may be a few minor differences in hardware like the inclusion of a microphone and speaker or level or waterproofing, so if you are conflicted about which of those to choose, you may just want to opt for the one with the style you find most appealing.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
